The Holiday Season is just as much about fancy dress and partying as it is about spending time with your family and stuffing your face around the Christmas Tree. I always look forward all the parties and especially New Year’s Eve, I look ahead and plan my outfit and always „dress to impress”. But it could be tricky in my case, as I don’t like that much the obvious party wear. I’m not a big fan of head to toe sparkles and tight dresses. My outfit has to be both festive and mine, in the sense that it has to reflect my personal style above the Holiday party style. That’s why I put on an old and classic pair of black jeans (an absolute staple in my wardrobe) together with a shiny top, with an 80s twist, and my new Aquazzura Alix Suede Courts shoes. I am such a huge fan of Aquazzura, their shoes are always perfectly comfortable and really well balanced between classy and edgy. The ones I’m wearing here, I found in Selfridges, because they always stock the best selection of party shoes (and not only). They are great not only for NYE lash, but for any other occasion really. Top buy if you ask me.

I had a pleasure to visit Jaeger brand new store in Marylebone High Street in London and choose a few pieces from their new AW collection. I’m so into feminine outfits nowadays and Jaeger is a great place to find exactly what I want, from a perfect blazer, a cashmere jumper to a winter coat. All pieces are made of cosy and soft fabrics .
Today I was wearing the two-piece set from Jaeger, blazer & skirt with this gorgeous shearling coat. If you live in London, or just visiting, pop in the new Jaeger store on Marylebone High Street, which is just a walking distance from Oxford Street.

I fell in love with Baum Und Pferdgarten SS17 collection when I saw runway images in the Internet during Copenhagen Fashion Week a few months ago. Especially the red silk two-piece caught my eye, which looks pretty much the same like a good pyjama. I’m lucky enough to wear it before it hits the store next year. It looks great as a total look, but also with my favorite pair of black jeans from Re/Done. Jimmy Choo boots make the look more sexy and feminine, exactly as I want it to be.

Here is my look for the Topshop Unique show this Sunday during London Fashion Week. Houndstooth print for some of you may seem to be conservative. I think the secret is to keep the right balance and make it look modern and fresh. I added to it the most simple t-shirt, which looks stolen from your boyfriend’s wardrobe. This look reflects the 90’s style at its best.
Below you can see my favorite selection of Unique pieces which hit the stores straight after the show. This is nothing other than real, fast fashion. And honestly I think it’s a great idea to be able to buy your favourite look immediately!

This is definitely my “back to work” look. After the entire summer of swimsuits and slip dresses, it’s finally time to put on something more elegant. I’m saying back to work, because July and August are mostly dead in the fashion world. Beginning of September marks the beginning of fashion month and the time fashion world awakes after 2 months of summer. In three days I’ll be in New York, and I’m definitely taking this little Pucci wonder with me, which I managed to haunt down in Monnier Freres. It’s very subtle and elegant, but feminine and a bit girly too. It’s my perfect bag, and I also have about 10 looks planned out with it, so make sure you follow my social media channels for full NYFW coverage. I highly recommend you to browse Monnier Freres and their other autumn propositions, from bags, to shoes and accessories. It’s one of my favorite online stores with designer pieces, where you can find not only universal brands like Philip Lim or Chloe, but also niece brands like Jerome Dreyfuss or Elizabeth and James.
Another big part of my “back to work” outfit is this midi dress. Or all midi dresses for that. I’m absolutely obsessed with this length, which will be a major trend this coming fall, as we’ve seen on many fashion shows in the February/March season of fashion weeks (click here to see the beautiful Saint Laurent collection which based around midi dresses). The only catch is, that a midi dress has to fit perfect to do wonders for the silhouette, it can’t be too short or too long. The perfect cutoff point is halfway between the knee and the ankle. I really like this flower print one for my “back to work” because it mixes the fall midi trend with a summery print making it the perfect transition outfit.
